Great fight. Both warriors, both winners. It’s hard not to admire Deontay there. Against a much larger man, and almost succeeded. Great fight. A 40 pound difference in weight is VERY. Fair play, both men are there, very pleasant fights they had together. Respect.

Their skill levels are unique but very similar. It was a great heavyweight trilogy. I love it when everything is set for sure, and both show a decent result. Not fake ring fakes celebrating after an ugly injury, etc., you know the concert, God bless the real in this world.

Congratulations to Tyson and Paris. Me and Dee are very happy for you and the kids. Congratulations also to Deontay and Telli. It was great to meet you guys recently. A real proud show that was and could have gone anyway. Amazing! Happy sunday today tonight with cheddar and blessing of memory
